Garber earns Black and Gold Ranger Tab
Submitted by Randy Garber
Imagine that at only 5 years old, you already know one of your goals in life would be to become a United States Army Ranger. That is true of Sabetha’s Austin Garber who you could constantly find drawing Army men and playing with his dad’s black Army beret during his younger years.
Little did Garber know that to become an Army Ranger, he would voluntarily put his body and mind through three months of the most vigorous battle leadership training our military has to offer. Garber kept his goal at heart all through his 12 years of school, still determined to enlist in the Army and complete Ranger School.
Now at age 21, showing the intestinal fortitude to never give up and keep pressing forward, Garber completed one of his lifelong goals. On Sept. 28 in Fort Benning, Ga., Garber earned his black and gold Ranger Tab.
He is the son of Scott and Summer Garber of Sabetha.
